VIA A SPECIAL TRANSMISSION, SEASON 2 OF DEMON SLAYER: KIMETSU NO YAIBA WAS CONFIRMED, WHICH SHOULD COME OUT THIS YEAR
In the middle of Valentine’s Day, the team behind the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba anime gave a gift to all fans of Japanese animation: Season 2 is on its way!
This was announced through a special online event that took place this Sunday in Japan. The official name is Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen. The part that corresponds to ‘Yuukaku-hen’ is in relation to one of the arcs in Koyoharu Gotōge’s manga.
DEMON SLAYER: KIMETSU NO YAIBA IS BACK WITH MORE EPISODES
This part of the story is known as the Entertainment District Arc, and what happens takes place after the hit animated film in the series. Tanjirou, Nezuko, Zenitsu and Inosuke appear again.
But they are also joined by another of the Pillars, Tengen Uzui, known as the Pillar of Sound. It is precisely he who appears highlighted in the advance that you can see in this same note. A fierce and fun battle is on the way.
From what was shared through the broadcast, the entire production team, as well as the voice actors, are back in this sequel. The ufotable studio, which was key to the success of this anime, is also back.
It would really be silly to leave them out. Director Haruo Sotozaki is back in charge, as is character designer Akira Matsushima. Uzui’s voice will once again be contributed by actor Katsuyuki Konishi.
SEASON 2 WILL RELEASE DURING THIS SAME YEAR
From what was shared this morning, the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 episodes will premiere this year. The first came out in the spring of 2019, but it seems doubtful that the second will arrive so soon.
If so, it would have been announced a long time ago. So it should be a summer or fall project. It could well be in the second season, since the animation work of the series is very extensive.
There are sequences from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba that can take weeks to make. But precisely that was part of the success of the first installment of the original anime.
Presumably it will be available on most video on demand services. In our region, its premiere can be expected on both Crunchyroll and Funimation. There is nothing left but to be on the lookout and wait for more information.
